    For $100,000 you could at least get the shade of yellow right! Ugh, designers!
  2. I love the concept of Arizona State students going on spring break. You go to Arizona State... every day is spring break if you want it to be.

    College Football Uniforms - 2019

    There are differences between the two uniforms, however the concept is consistent: Blue Background = Solid gold stripe Gold or White Background = Blue | Yellow | Blue striping. You can explain the moments when that consistency is broken due to tradition (like the blue helmet) or necessity (gold numbers outlined in blue would be too difficult to read)
  4. Every sport has their “drop the puck / tip-off / first pitch at 7PM” slogan. You can easily replace “Kick-off” with “First Snap” and it sounds just fine.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    Abstract concepts like “character” or “charm” are often dependent upon the observer... If you feel that way, I probably can’t sway your opinion right now; but I think in time those things can develop in your mind. Good design has a tendency to grow on people, and while you might not be a fan of the chosen direction for this rebranding, I don’t think anyone can say that this was poorly executed.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    The only part of this rebrand I'm not entirely buying is the block numerals on the uniforms. It doesn't really match anything else in the brand. I think a one color treatment of GT America Medium or Bold numerals would have pushed this entire concept a little bit further.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    This logo has far more of a connection with traditional design language (like something created between 1965-1985) than anything exclusively modern. Even if that style has seen a renaissance recently in the corporate design world, we also know that certain sports logos designed in that era (I'm thinking of logos like the Philadelphia Flyers, Hartford Whalers, Buffalo Braves) have easily withstood the test of time, so why not design a logo in 2019 that clearly models the design style of something so successful? I mean, half of the people I had seen were clamoring for the Als to return to one of these two logos, which are drawn in very similar styles:

    MLS Kits 2019

    There’s definitely room for two light-blue teams, but I also don’t think it’s an accident that since City came into the league neither of SKC’s “primary” kits have had navy shorts. I’m not sure if that’s Adidas’ reluctance to have two light blue / navy kits and pushing for more variance inside the league, or if it’s a directive that’s coming from SKC themselves (or some combo of the two)... but I’m led to believe that there’s some sort of connection there.

    MLS Kits 2019

    Don’t like the new SKC kit at all. Sashes, plaid/checks, stripes, hoops, argyle, asymmetrical... SKC has literally done it all now. At some point it stops feeling like a team finding its identity and more of a team throwing against the wall because they don’t believe they have one.

    2019 MLB Changes

    I’m pretty sure the reports said that the Tigers were going back to the smaller cap logo, but it will still be slightly larger than the version they wore in 2017. Hopefully they hit a nice middle ground.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Halfway there, just need to bring back the jersey "D" and undo all the unnecessary changes from last year.

    New Northwoods League Team celebrates cherries, spitting

    Spitting is gross, fellas.
  13. I was highest on Orlando after the logos were released, but there’s not really anything about that uniform that’s appealing... even the helmet treatment removes the strongest part of the logo, the encompassing “O” shape of the archer. So it looks like I’m a Hotshots fan.
